SSAT In-school support and consultancy
SSAT is able to offer a wide range of consultancy services to help schools which includes:
• Whole school and subject focused self-evaluation reviews
• Reviews of assessment, data and tracking
• Briefings for senior leaders and governors
• In-school training on lesson observation, self-evaluation and being ready for inspection.
Please get in touch to discuss your specific needs. We can offer full, half-day and twilight sessions.
If you request a review visit, our consultant will be working with you to test out your self-evaluation and help you identify areas for further development, providing feedback during the day and also in a written report. We will be helping you to be Ofsted-ready rather than prepare for an inspection.
Headteachers have told us that they found the support and guidance invaluable and they praise the rigour and insight of our consultants both in confirming what they believed to be good practice and in identifying areas of the school’s work which were not as well-established as they thought.
All our consultants are highly experienced as senior leaders or advisers and have expertise in primary, secondary, post-16 and special education. Most have either current or recent Ofsted training.
The specialist areas that our consultants are often asked to work with schools on include:
- Teaching and Learning
- Leadership and management
- Subject-specific support
- Lesson observation
- School improvement
- Support with self-evaluation
- Reviewing data systems
